To the choir director: for the wind instruments. A Psalm of David

Ps 5:1To my words give ear, O Jehovah; / Consider my moaning.

Ps 5:2Give heed to the sound of my cry, / My King and my God; / For to You do I pray.

Ps 5:3O Jehovah, in the morning / You will hear my voice; / In the morning I will set forth my words in order to You, / And I will watch.

Ps 5:4For You are not a God who delights in wickedness; / Evil will not sojourn with You.

Ps 5:5Those who boast will not stand / Before Your eyes; / You hate all workers of iniquity.

Ps 5:6You will destroy those who speak lies. / Jehovah abhors a man of bloodshed and deceit.

Ps 5:7But as for me, in the abundance of Your lovingkindness / I will come into Your house; / I will bow down toward Your holy temple / In fear of You.

Ps 5:8O Jehovah, lead me in Your righteousness / On account of those who lie in wait for me; / Make Your way straight before me.

Ps 5:9For there is no truth in their mouth; / Their inward part is corruption itself; / Their throat is an open grave; / They flatter with their tongue.

Ps 5:10Hold them guilty, O God; / Let them fall by their own counsels; / Because of the multitude of their transgressions thrust them out, / For they have rebelled against You.

Ps 5:11But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; / Let them shout for joy forever; / And may You spread a cover over them; / And those who love Your name / Will exult in You.

Ps 5:12For You will bless the righteous man, O Jehovah; / You will surround him with favor as with a shield.
